Fioravanti Thalia

GENEVA — We've come to expect the unexpected from former Pininfarina ace Leonardo Fioravanti, father of the Dino and other delectable Ferraris. His creation for this year's Geneva auto show — the Thalia — does not disappoint.

Fioravanti ThaliaThe Thalia, a design study for a futuristic crossover vehicle, is said to feature an alternative-energy propulsion system. Perhaps its most striking design feature is a second "windshield" — kind of like a modern-day take on the Olds Vista Cruiser wagon — for the second-row passengers.

The bubbled dome and higher seating position give rear occupants an unimpeded view of the road ahead. The propulsion system is packaged under the raised rear floor.

Thalia was one of the fabled Greek muses of poetry and comedy.
